Craft-Dee BowZ Christmas Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Craft-Dee BowZ Christmas Holiday Blog Hop.

Oh, Christmas is such a special time of year. The colors, the images, the gifts, and.........well everything about Christmas is special. It's fun decorating and just getting everything ready for that special day.

The elves (also known as the design team members) have been hard at work getting projects ready to inspire you. So if you are still looking for that perfect thing, you know, a card, or some decoration, check out what we have to share with you.

Craft-Dee BowZ has a small design team so it won't take you long to visit all the team members and leave comments. Leaving comments on the blogs of all the team members will make you eligible to win your very own Craft-Dee BowZ tool. The winner will be announced on Sat. Dec. 6. To claim your prize you must contact us by email ( by Saturday Dec. 13. That will give you a week to claim your prize.

Sit down for a quick breather and enjoy our blog hop.

Today we are going to start off  with a gorgeous creation from Donna, the owner of Craft-Dee BowZ.

Here is what Donna has to say about her very creative card.

The Birch Tree Scene

Hello bow makers!  This is your first stop for the blog hop and I have a card that shows my (other) obsession with Impression Obsession dies.  Don't forget to leave a comment to have your name in the drawing for a Craft-Dee BowZ tool for completing the blog hop.  You MUST have entered a comment with each designer to qualify.

I fell in love with Impression Obsession dies last year and my heart did a special flutter when I saw the new birch trees and cardinals.  This card can be used for  many different occasions both for male or female.  I adhered the birch trees and cardinals on blue card stock first.  I then cut an oval out of white card stock using my Spellbinders oval die and imposed a fancy die over the opening.  I then attached the birch trees in back of the white opening.  The addition of a perky checkered bow made on my Craft-Dee BowZ tool and some pine trees by Impression Obsession completed the look.  This was all mounted on a red card base.

Thank you one and all for your support and for playing along in 2014 with our Challenges and Blog Hops.  And good luck to one lucky winner!

Next you will want to hop over to Dana's blog to see what she has created just for you. 

Here is the list of the designers in case you get lost.
